360 west magazine

Our family was featured in 360 West Magazine this past week. Click on the link and then go to page 76 to read the article. (the quickest way is to click on the center button that says cover and scroll down to page 76)

I think Judy captured the reality that exists here at Team Alexander pretty well. I had the best intentions of moving the skateboard, putting away the laundry and making all the kids get dressed for the day................. oh well :)

Praying that He would receive the glory and draw the hearts of readers to do something about the 147 million orphans in the world.

I love the perfect chaos and abundant love that she captured in this article. Your family continues to be a wonderful example! God's blessings abound and I am thrilled that your story (His love) is shared with many! God bless!

We got ours in the mail on Saturday and I was flipping through it quickly before I could toss it in the trash and I stumbled upon this DARLING family!!! I just started screaming! Loved the article. My fave was Issy in her robe with the macbook on her head. It sounds just like our house. My kids were like... "PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE can we get one!! See... they are just like us!" loll!

i used to be a journalist specializing in feature stories like this one, and i think she did an excellent job of portraying what God has done on your journey through a short article. the photos are fabulous, although i wish the 147 million orphans shirts you and hill were wearing could've been seen! still, great profile!

I love the article! I was especially touched by your bio kids and their awesome love for their new siblings. I teared up when I read about the day at KVI being "the happiest day of my life." Your entire family inspires...I can't wait to watch my own kids experience some of the same emotions through our adoption! Thanks for sharing,
Deena

Beautiful article. I love the fun and warmth with your family. Seems like ours. Fun loud and crazy chaos that you wouldn't change for anything. It brought tears to my eyes reading about what the kids said. That is so sweet. We were hoping to raise enough to take 2 of ours as well. Have a wonderful Friday!
